Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber is expected ot be the starting running back on Monday versus the Atlanta Falcons. There are some troubling signs for the Falcons, they have scored a combined 29 points in the past two games after averaging 31.5 points in the previous three games. Considering the Bucs' issues and disappointing 4-9 record, this team could use all the help they can get especially when it comes to the running game. With Martin sidelined, Barber will lead the way out of the Buccaneers backfield, while Charles Sims handles pass-catching reps and Jacquizz Rodgers serves in a change-of-pace role. Martin may have played his final snap in Tampa Bay.
Jones ranks fourth in the league in receiving yards (with 1,161) and tied for 11 in catches (with 73). The five-time Pro Bowler was the first player drafted by the franchise in 1966. In a surprising turn on events, though, Martin is a health scratch due to a violation of team rules, according to ESPN's Monday Night Countdown.

When the deal is done, Thales will merge its own enterprise security business with Gemalto's, which will keep its own brand name. The deal, still subject to shareholder and regulatory approval, is scheduled to close during the second half of 2018.
Martin's next chance to return to the field comes next Sunday when the Bucs travel to take on the Carolina Panthers.
